‘Flew from WA back to Queensland yesterday after six weeks away for this egg donation. Ended up going straight to hospital from the plane,’ she said.
She said her symptoms included: ‘Severe abdominal swelling and pain, pain on pressure, plus a few other milder symptoms (nausea, dizziness, leg pain, shortness of breath). Unsure if being in the air made it worse.’
Megan was diagnosed with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
‘OHSS is no joke, I can’t imagine how people with severe symptoms deal with this, because it’s just been a week of hell,’ she said.
